The Mil Mi-24 (NATO reporting name "Hind") is a large helicopter gunship and low-capacity troop transport designed by Mil Moscow Helicopter Plant in 1969, featuring a cockpit with a distinctive tandem "Double-Bubble" style canopy with the machine gun/auto-cannon in a "chin-gun" configuration. Many were sold to Warsaw Pact members or Soviet allies such as Poland, North Korea, Vietnam, etc.

MEC Special Forces
The Mi-35 HIND is a vehicle featured in Battlefield 2: Special Forces for use by the Russian Spetsnaz, Rebel Forces, and MEC Special Forces. Its armament is the same as the many other attack helicopters in the game, but the Hind is much bulkier than its counterparts, meaning that it's a much bigger target for manually-guided man-portable launchers such as the ERYX or SRAW.
Battlefield 2: Modern CombatEdit
The Mi-24 is a vehicle featured in Battlefield 2: Modern Combat as the main attack helicopter for the Middle Eastern Coalition in multiplayer. Its counterparts are the USMC AH-64D and the EU AS-665 Tiger.
Battlefield: Bad CompanyEdit
The Mil Mi-24 Hind only appears in the singleplayer campaign of Battlefield: Bad Company as a gold-plated personal variant owned by Zavimir Serdar. It is the only helicopter available for use in the singleplayer campaign on the mission Air Force One. It has unlimited rockets that the player can fire at will and it never overheats. The player can also switch to the gunner seat to take control of the 20mm cannon while Haggard keeps the helicopter in place. It is very maneuverable and can hover in place, which is effective for consistent fire on a target. The Mi-24 is the only helicopter available for use in singleplayer, and the relative ease to control can mislead players when using the helicopters in multiplayer.
Battlefield: Bad Company 2Edit
|Passenger weapon||23mm chaingun|
|Passenger weapon damage||30 (impact); 16.7 (blast, damage drops gradually after 2.5 meter radius up to 5 meters); ? (base damage against vehicles)|
|Passenger weapon reload time||2 seconds|
|Passenger weapon rate of fire||600 rpm|
|Passenger weapon firemode||Automatic|
|Smoke countermeasures effect||Flares|
|Sound(s)||Firing the Chain gun|
The Mi-24 Hind appears numerous times throughout the singleplayer campaign and functions in the exact same manner as in the multiplayer.
The Mi-24 can carry up to four players, with a pilot, a gunner, and two passengers who can fire off from the sides of the Hind. The helicopter is reasonably well armored, but can be damaged heavily when faced against enemies with RPGs and Heavy Machine Guns.
The Hind flies more like an attack helicopter than the Black Hawk, being fairly sensitive to movement. Its chain gun fires in short bursts, and is heavily effective against infantry and light vehicles. It is essentially a cross between the Black Hawk (for its passenger seats) and the Havoc/Apache (for its chin mounted chain gun and maneuverability).
- President Serdar owns a personal Mil Mi-24 Hind which was 'pimped out' with a disco ball and a hot-tub, even though the player can't see it. The entire helicopter is painted gold, and has a few accessories attached to the cockpit windows.
- In Battlefield 2: Special Forces, the Hind does not have the capability to carry passengers.
- In Battlefield: Bad Company the Hind is able to fire rockets in singleplayer. In Battlefield: Bad Company 2, only the second and third Hinds in the helicopter chase section of No One Gets Left Behind can fire rockets, and they are never available in singleplayer and multiplayer.
- In Battlefield 3, Hinds are present as static objects, mostly parked at airfields. During the airstrike on Mehrabad Airport in Going Hunting, the player can see Hinds on the ground when using the ATFLIR system.
- Despite its use by the Russian military, the Hind variant seen in Bad Company 2 is actually based on based on the South African Mi-24 "SuperHind" upgrade, which switches the avionics to Western ones as well as adapting the helicopter to use Western weaponry, notably replacing (as seen on the Bad Company 2 Hind) the "Yak-B" and "GSh-23" cannon for a French cannon.
